Varisu: Characters are important
Before going into the story of Vaarisu, it is important to know who and what the characters are. Sarathkumar - Jayasudha couple have three sons Srikanth, Sham, and Vijay.
Sangeetha as Srikanth's wife and Samyukta as Shaam's wife. Sarathkumar's professional rival is Prakash Raj, whose son is Ganesh Venkatram. Rashmika Mandana plays Sangeetha's sister. Yogi Babu plays the role of a servant and Prabhu plays the role of a family doctor.
The crux of the story
Sarathkumar, who thinks of the family as a business mind, declares that whoever succeeds in business among his 3 sons will become his successor. But Vijay, the last son, who wants to start his own business instead of living in his father's shadow, has a problem with Sarathkumar. Due to this Vijay leaves the house. Meanwhile, Sarathkumar comes to know that he has cancer and that he has only a few months to live.
Thus he wishes to conduct his 60th wedding ceremony for his wife. Vijay returns home after 7 years for this event. Whereas elder brother Srikanth has an affair with another girl. The second son Sham tells the business secret to his enemy Ganesh Venkatraman for the loan he took. Due to this, Sarathkumar faces a setback in business.
The mistakes made by the 2 sons are revealed in the sixtieth wedding ceremony. Thus Sarathkumar appoints Vijay as the next heir to his entire empire. Due to this decision, Srikanth and Sham sons also leave the house. Varisu tells whether they are reunited with the family and what is the status of Prakashraj who defeats Sarathkumar with loving action.
Vijay is a one-man army
If we talk about Vijay, he carries the film as a one-man army from the first scene to the last. Vijay has once again proved that he is Gilli in all areas like family affection, love, and action dance. Whereas the length of the film is high and the first half has a lot of subplots which makes the audience bored at some points.
Although Rashmika Mandhana doesn't have much of a character in the film, her dance performance in place of Vijay in the song Ranjithame gets applause. As Dil Raju said at the audio launch, this film has everything from song, dance, fight, comedy, and emotion. But in many places, it does not stick to the scene.
Since it is a family story, love in all relationships is sprinkled throughout the film. Timing comedies between Vijay and Yogi Babu have worked out well. Similarly, SJ Surya's performance is appreciated even though he only comes for a few minutes. In the film, Vijay has made references to scenes from his previous films, which is an unexpected surprise for the fans.
Not to mention Prakashraj's villainy. But in this film, he played a bit subdued. And the easily predictable visual settings set the film back.
S.S Thaman's background music
From the songs to the background music, Thaman has poured his hard work. Fascinating what kind of background an action-hero should have. Karthik Palani's cinematography is beautiful.
A treat for fans
In the first half, apart from Arariraro, the other two songs are unnecessary. The second half of Thee Thalapathy, Ranjithame song is sure to be a treat for the fans. Especially in the last one and a half minutes of the song Ranjithame, Vijay danced so much that the theater was shaking. The film crew has given a good response to those who criticized the song Mocha Kotta Pallalagi even for the Ranjitame song.
There is no doubt that Varisu film, which is made up of half of love and action, will be a family celebration film in this Pongal release..!
